Overview

The Review

With its European style and Uruguayan soul, the brand new After Hotel is transforming Montevideo’s hotel scene. I lived in Uruguay’s gentle capital once upon a time, and I adore it for having all the charms of its celebrated Argentine counterpart (Colonial-era quirks, European feel, great steak), plus a dazzling coastline and a laid-back vibe. But Montevideo is not, generally speaking, a mecca of fashion or service. Restaurants can take 15 minutes to serve coffee, the dress code is casual, and the nice hotels are often stodgy.{“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/2678/prop-86866-1339600867-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”The brand new After Hotel is just a few blocks from Montevideo’s quiet riverside esplanade.”}

The After is changing all that. It has a look that is clean-lined and swish. The 92 guestrooms, which range from comfortably cozy to uncommonly ample, are smartly done up, with black-and-white interiors accented by patterned gray carpets, mod metal light fixtures and dashes of crimson and chocolate. Premium Rooms and top-floor suites show off luxe Italian leather sofas and lounge chairs. The bathrooms are state-of-the-art affairs in slate, chrome and mirrors.

The location in the posh Buceo neighborhood has advantages and drawbacks. On the one hand, the area — home to the city’s emerging financial district and an upscale residential community — has great dining and a grassy and undeveloped shoreline, and it’s totally safe. On the other hand, the attractions of the city center are relatively far away (though the front desk will happily arrange a city tour).

The best part about staying here is that the After, like Montevideo, inspires people to take it easy. By 5:30 p.m. the lobby bar, 20 Pasos Café, is buzzing with businessmen unwinding over whiskey-based cocktails, while tuckered-out leisure travelers refresh themselves with a rooftop swim. In the morning a lavish continental breakfast featuring everything from scrambled eggs to bread with dulce de leche is available until 11 — yet another indulgence for travelers enjoying the easy life, Uruguay-style.

Wors internet connection in my life.

It's incredible how slow is the internet. I called and they told me to "log out and log in again" and of course it does not works... It is not possible to use Skype nor Netflix, it's like living in 1990.

Consider another hotel if you use internet.

I had a great stay during our weekend celebration of LOVE. Michel especially went above and beyond to ensure we were satisfied and felt at home during our stay. The room was decorated for our stay and they even brought little treats to the room as an extra added love token for our celebration. Breakfast was superb! All in all, I recommend this hotel and will definitely be staying in the future. THANKS!

Noisy and uncomfortable
Reviewed 10 months ago

It pains me to write this review, as after reading others about the hotel I was expecting it to be fine.

Firstly - the location. It's not great...take a wrong turn and you'll be lost in less than desirable streets. If you are in Montevideo for a holiday / as a tourist, this is not where you'll want to be, you should stay close to the old town.

Our room was fine - clean and tidy. The bed was uncomfortable and the pillows terrible. We were put in an adjoining room and were kept up till 5am by the room next door having a party. We complained twice, and although the staff did ask them to be quiet, the walls are so very thin that it made no difference.

The only saving grace of the hotel is the staff. They are kind and friendly and understood why we were so upset. They gave us a discount on our parking after we complained, which was really kind, but this didn't really make up for the hotel's poor construction and cheap fittings.

This hotel rates itself as 4 star - it's really not. It's worse than a cheap travel inn.

Great location (Rambla , Mall, ... ) and nice accomodations !!

We had a good reception. They have rooms for disabled person. We enjoyed the breakfast ( from 7am to 11am ). We had dinner in the hotel and the menu is quite good. Few options but good ones. The dinner is until 11pm. The location is great. We could get most of the Montevideo's attractions in few minutes. The wifi works good. A bit noise could be heard from the others rooms, but not during the night. The room is clear with TV, AC and rooms service everyday.
